williams could have done that. the defense is saying no way, this is what happened here. you had evidence back then in 1984 that amos norwood had a sexual relationship. >> the victim. >> the victim, with terrance williams and not only that, you also had evidence back in 1984 that amos norwood, the victim in the case, had been abusing other boys as well, and you didn't turn that over to the defense. well, the judge listened to both sides and said to the defense you're right, this evidence should have been turned over to the defense back in 1984. the jurors should have had an opportunity to hear that when they were making their decision. jurors didn't have an opportunity to hear that and, ashley, you know this. i interviewed one of the jurors from 1984 just last week. they said had i known then what i know now, i would not have voted for the death penalty. >> not just that juror. already other jurors and actually isn't it the widow of amos as well has come out saying i am not so sure i am comfortable with this death penalty? do i have my wires crossed? >> the widow came out and said that sh
challenged woman. holly hughes is with me. you're a criminal defense. used to be a prosecutor. have you ever seen a case like this? and what is the explanation? kind of seems like a path mentality that all these girls worked together to do such a horrible thing. >> it is. and unfortunately we're seeing more and more of this with our young people. we're seeing children who wouldn't ordinarily do something like this if they were by themselves. they would probably just walk by that sweet lady. 48 years old and mentally disabled. why don't you pick on somebody your own size? this is so disturbing. that's why we've seen them charged as adults here. they're all underage. they could have been taken into the juvenile system. but they have all been charged as adults. they're facing 20, 40 years depending on how many charges are stacked against them. >> it almost seems like they were feeding off each other in this video. how damaging is that video to a judge, to a jury seeing that and how brutal it was? >> that's exactly right. and it's not just that some of them are throwing punches. but it's that en

moved chemical weapons for security reasons. defense secretary leon panetta characterized it as limited movement and believed the stockpiles were secured by the syrian military. now, panetta says the sites are being monitored by the united states and other countries. he says they're keeping a close eye on the situation. earlier today barbara star questioned the defense secretary about the development, and she's going to be joining in just a few moments. >> there's a group in d.c. that's figured out a way to send u.s. dollars to the rebels, and the government, well, the u.s. government is nott happy about this. brian todd has the story. >> reporter: outgunned at the beginning, syrian's rebels have gradually gained strength, taking the fight more directly to bashar al assad's regime and scoring victories. could some of the victories have started from this computer in washington? >> that's where you can actually identify where they conduct -- where they have a stronghold. >> brian heads the u.s.-based arm of the syrian support group, a nongovernmental group dedicated to helping the syrian
will be watching for is whether the court takes a case on gay marriage or the defensive marriage act. so a lot on the plate and some very divisive and even wedge issues, the court could be deciding this term, ashleigh. >> and listen, joe, as we've been covering the supreme court for the last 20 years, it's no secret that these decisions become increasingly partisan or at least that is the optics out there for those of us who watch this. because those decisions are always right down the line it seems on the big, big topics. in fact sandra day o'connor recently said in an interview said she's distressed about the confidence level in the country. so with these big decisions coming up, is it important for chief justice john roberts to keep that in mind? to keep this confidence level of the united states front and center as this group makes these decisions? >> well, i think right now despite the health care decision that everybody knows about, you still have to say that chief justice roberts is a conservative. and you're right, this court is very evenly divided, sort of four on the right, four on t
plan that the best offense is a good defense? finally, can barack obama get back into a winning mode? the polls were looking good going into this, right? you got two remaining debates with romney. we are going to get some answers and smeperspective from charles blow. i read your column and i know how you feel about this. give me the quick one-liner how you thought last night went? >> obama lost. i play basketball in high school and you're not in your best form and you lose it. doesn't mean you lose the election and the other guy is better. just means you danny show up that night and didn't do a good job. go back, look at the tape and practice hard and come back the next time and do a better job the next time. >> he let himself be interrupted. he didn't call out certain kinds of issues when mitt romney was able to walk through him and lay out a slew of stats. >> they widon't call what mitt was saying is facts. >> fact checkers hit both of them pried hard. charles, is this a question of the president who is trying to remain presidential and elegant and eloquent? that didn't work like,
of defense, leon panetta confirms this. >> we do believe that those sites still remain secured by the syrian military. there has been intelligence that there have been some moves that have taken place. where exactly that has taken place, we don't know. >> panetta also says the u.s. and other countries are monitoring these weapon sites. >>> pope benedict's former butler is on trial today at the vatican. he's accused of leaking hundreds of secret pages from the pontiff's apartment. if he is convicted, he could spend up to eight years in prison. he has pled not guilty. the vatican computer technician is also on trial. >>> more than 100 voter registrations in the big battleground state of florida are being called suspicious.ur endorsed by weight watchersbd and your taste buds have always endorsed us. so, you know what this means... this is a real win win! yoplait, it is so good. gins with back pain and a choice. take advil, and maybe have to take up to four in a day. or take aleve, which can relieve pain all day with just two pills. good eye. since then, there's been one wedding, 2 kids, and 43
. he is trying to make the case that the best defense is a better economy tying national security to the economy, but one very interesting thing that happened here, suzanne, mitt romney at the very end of this speech here said he is going to win pennsylvania. he said that earlier. he said it again he is going to pennsylvani the polls -- or latest cnn poll of polls shows mitt romney down by ten points here. it would be a very tough uphill climb for h to win tstate. >> right. >> i think it's in the romney campaign's interest to expand the map, and i think that's what they're trying to do. >> john mccain didn't win pennsylvania the last go round either. ditheyhange in any significant way when they look at the demographics and they get some sort of optimism or confidence from that? >> well, you know, pat toomey, the pennsylvania senate repuan annnced m romney. he was able to wi t state, and even though he had some credentials, he was ahead of the ub forroh at one time, and so this is a state that haseen trendiittlng a le more republican in recent years. they have a republican governor
? >> reporter: presumably what's going on here is that like any defense attorney the legal team representing paolo gabriele in this process is trying to create sympathy for their client and one of the ways they are trying to do that is to suggest that some of that testimony that he gave to vatican investigators during the preliminary investigation over the summer may have come under duress and, therefore, should be taken with a grain of salt. now what the vatican will tell you, suzanne is some of these conditions such as keeping the light on all time and having people go in and out of his cell a lot to check open him was largely because he was under a sort of a suicide watch. these were obviously extraordinary circumstances. the guy was under enormous pressure. they were worried he might try to harm himself. they will argue some of the condions he's describing were not intended to harm him, they were actually intended to keep him safe. this is kind of the standard opening skirmish that goes on in virtually any criminal trial. >> the butler is saying he handed over these documents because he
even though he too is on the defensive as it relates to health care? >> the president is clearly in the lead, but still in a somewhat precarious position. he is defying gravity. he still has at least 2/3 of the country saying we're on the wrong track, usually that's a very difficult environment for the incumbent to get elected. and for the president, voters are not convinced they wanted to go the romney's direction, but extending where we are for the next four years is not an attractive process. he's got to walk that tight rope by saying we are moving in the right direction. and also kind of give people a sense of the next four years that are going to be better in their arrives than the previous four have been. >> sometimes we look ahead and see that yes, what these candidates say is going to be important and pivotal what their body language has said. who can forget the gore-bush debate, and you have to wonder betwn these two candidates, romney and obama, who's likely to win, who's likely to be too breathy, or maybe be an easy read just by finally expressions that could potential
and defense of the homeland. it is a nice word to use. it is a nice term. >> usually, maria, republicans use that word and quite effectively. >> yeah. actually, that's why i think it is very smart for the president to do this and ann is right. it does work. i think he is smart to do this for the simple reason that what it really means is betting on america. it really gives the president a chance not just to contrast his policies against mitt romney's and how the president's policies will build out the middle class, and how romney's policies will build out the 1%, but it makes him focus or let's the focus be on what romney has actually done throughout his lifetime. on his taxes we see that he has invested in foreign countries with secret corporations in bermuda, banks in the cayman islands, switzerland -- >> a lot of americans invest in foreign countries. doesn't mean they're less patriotic. >> but it means that mitt romney's policies are not focused on building out the middle class in america. that's where i think it comes down. the contrast between somebody that really understands what it i
is sticking its nose into all things. it's gotten us into huge trouble. >> so to be clear and defense attorney joey jackson is back with me from atlanta. professor jackson representative akin was suggesting that the government should not be telling people what to do in their businesses and i think a lot of people really understand and feel that way. but there are something you can and cannot do according to the law. would you enlighten me, please as to whether you can choose somebody who is black make less or choose somebody who is female make more or less? what's the story? >> insert foot in mouth. you know there are laws in the country and what do they say? specifically the law he was talking about and it was a big political issue might remember the campaign and in fact at that time, you know, john mccain was even against it, and the republican party was against it but the law he's talking about relates to equal pay and there's a gender gap with between what females and males make. lowers are doing this inappropriately and there's a law that says you can't. in 1963 was the first equal pay ac
, defensive outsource. let me play that moment and i'll ask you about it on the other side. >> when it comes to our tax code, governor romney and i both agree our corporate tax rate is too high, so i want to lower it, particularly for manufacturing, taking it down to 25%, but i also want to close those loopholes that are giving incentives for companies that are shipping jobs overseas, i want to provide tax breaks for companies that are investing here in the united states. >> you said you get a deduction for taking a plantoverseas? i've been in business for 25 years, i have no idea what you're talking about. >> so i don't either. because i actually don't know the tax code that well. are there actually incentives currently, hal, that encourage people to take their jobs out of the united states? >> well, both the president and mitt romney are both right the way they answered the question. the reality is we don't have a specific incentive to take jobs out of the u.s. but what happens is if you can move your taxable income to another jurisdiction that has a low tax rate, like china, you can pay l
certainly that could be big. the defense of marriage act, gay marriage is a huge issue. then there are things that could end up on the docket like voting rights cases. so it could be quite a year, carol. >> yeah. we'll be watching. as i'm sure you will. joe johns reporting live for us this morning. >>> maybe he's just spinning it like a politician. or maybe there really is a chance maria shriver will take around schwarzenegger back. it doesn't look good. not in light of the revelations he made in his autautobiography. the way he handled the situation involving the son he formered with his former maid while he was married to mariashriver. here's what he told cbs's "60 minutes." >> very difficult. strange. bizarre. whatever you want to call it. but it's the best way i could handle it. it was one of those things we thought about, you know, denial. i kind of put it away and just said to myself, i'm going to put this away. >> how can you put it away? you have a child. >> i know. but that's just the way i operate. >> on "good morning america" schwarzenegger says he wishes his
to talk about. all romney can do is sling mud because he has no strategy or defense and most importantly, no solutions. this from eleanor, arrogance always looks better than humility for those who believe themselves to be god. this from bob, who cares? worst choice since ford and carter. and this from dean, the president always rises to the occasion and has proved he works best under stress. i'm confident he'll get his message across tomorrow night loud and clear. facebook.com/carolcnn if you'd like to continue the conversation. the next hour of "cnn newsroom" starts right now. happening now in the newsroom, scare in the air. >> the seat is loose and rotate pretty quickly. >> based on american airlines seats coming loose, eight planes grounded and the faa is investigating. >>> counting down to tomorrow's debate, president obama's biggest challenge not mitt romney? >>> legalizing marijuana, it's not just a pipe dream in the state hosting tomorrow's debate. we'll look at an issue for a coveting voting block. >>> and ikea is apologizing, now saying it regrets deleting images of women from t
is that they want to be prepared for the worst when they get to the real debate, so if they feel defensive, as some of romney's aides are worried that he might get, he can sort of get it out of his system and react in debate prep as opposed to doing it during the real thing. >> and, dana, you say he is the go-to guy for the republicans for many, many candidates. does he actually take on the persona of the person that they're debating, you know? does he try to impersonate obama in any way? >> i tried to get him to role play to see if there was sort of an "snl" future for him. >> exactly. >> he wouldn't go there with me. i have asked that question, and for rob portman, i'm told that he doesn't, you know, imitate barack obama per se, but he really embodies him with regard to the kind of -- the way he talks, the kind of things that he would say, the phrase of a sentence or two, and, of course, how he feels about policies. he says maybe it's a little bit scary that i have come to know the other side's policies so well, but he also said it has prepared him and made him a better legislator because he actu
of defense has said these would be devastating. i will not cut our commitment to our military. i will keep america strong and get america's middle class working again. thank you, jim. >> thank you, governor. thank you, mr. president. the next debate will be on thursday october 11th. for now from the university of denver, i'm jim lehrer. thank you and good night. [ applause ] >>> all right. here we are live on cnn. good to see you. i'm brooke baldwin. debate one is in the books. what are you hearing? i'm hearing the president could have used a cup of coffee. maybe two. that's from his own supporters. >> he looked tired to me. i mean, i think a lot of people said that it felt like -- i don't know. ultimately, it's partly the fault of the prepping but the president's got -- it's difficult after four years, you kn, you haven't debated. it's a different format but he's got to step up and do that. >> well, already today, here he is. the president hitting the campaign trail. we'll hear what he said in a moment. and it's pretty safe to say he's looking more chipper than last night when the snap po
bradford completed seven passes, but two of them were for scores. in the meantime, the rams defense was putting pressure on the cardinals quarterback, kevin kolb, he was sacked nine times. rams win, 17-3. the troubled tenure of boston red sox manager bobby valentine is over. sox fired valentine. he was brought in to restore order to the clubhouse after last season's fried chicken and beer debacle. but didn't work out. beyond valentine, the red sox were plagued by injuries this year and wound up with their worst record since 1965. valentine went biking after learning his fate. >> the ownership of this team is terrific. let me tell you, john henry flew up from florida to make sure he was here in person, you know, to be with me and us today. and, you know, tom and larry, no one cares more than them. and i think they're doing what they think is the right thing to do for the fans. because this wasn't acceptable. i get that. >> baseball's playoffs begin today with first ever wild card games. win or go home. in the national league, the braves host the cardinals, first pitch 5:07 p.m. easte
in a lot of -- using a lot of defense mechanisms. he uses a lot of regression where he admits that something has happened, such as the birth of his son with his housekeeper, but then, you know, shuts that away and may say, well, i didn't really acknowledge it until years later when he started looking like me. i think he knew from the very beginning that was probably his son because certainly he was involved with this woman and he claims, yes, there was another man in the picture. that's why he didn't own up, but arnold, i really do believe knew what he was doing. he is a smart man. >> jeff, a lot of people look at this, and it's, you know, quite frankly, a lot of my female friends look at this and say, wow, this is a familiar scenario here. someone has cheated on them in their life. why do they do it? >> well, i think a lot of it is the big t, high testosterone. a lot of it is being -- >> that sounds like an excuse. >> well, it is. we do know that because men have more testosterone, they act out more, but there's something called commonsense. there's something called being fai
this conversation going. we have criminal defense attorney joey jackson on the case with me today. good to see you sir. what a story. >> boy. >> yeah, i had a reparative therapist on last hour and it got contentious. there are people on both sides of this. let me begin with the first question of this new law, banning minors from par take in this kind of therapy. if a therapist ignores that law, would he or she go to jail? >> it is not so much a criminal, they're not looking to criminalize therapists, but, of course, if you don't obey the law, that's what it could lead to, but it is more about discipline, it is about your license, this is something we're not going to allow or consider to be appropriate, we believe it to be junk science, as a result of that you can be disciplined. and you have to make a living, so if you do it, no license, can't perform any further. >> this is still a journey he's undergoing and he said it absolutely worked for him. take a listen. >> my anxiety went down. my self-esteem went up. my confidence in my own gender identity went up. and was more secured in me over a perio
a number of incidents between the two countries. last june, syrian antiaircraft defenses shot down a turkish military reconnaissance jet, killing two pilots, both sides disagree on where exactly that incident took place. but the turks did not really fire back. they didn't use force aside from condemning that attack. the syrians accused turkey of arming the rebels that are fighting against bashar al assad's regime. so this is a very tense relationship and there are voices here at turkey calling for more significant retaliation in response to the death of these five turkish citizens. >> how do the turks feel, ivan, when it comes to possible military intervention in syria? >> i think there are a lot of misgivings, brooke. there are a lot of voices here that are afraid that turkey could be dragged into a war with syria. opposition, political parties have spoken out against the government's policy of supporting the syrian opposition and supporting the syrian rebels. they actually accused the u.s. of trying to outsource turkey to try to bring down the assad regime. those are charges that
anybody come across making those statements. you must play offense, not just defense. >> we'll talk to governor ted strickland, one of obama's surrogates. we'll ask him that question. roland martin, will cain, thank you. >> thank you. morning to y'all. >>> what a crowning achievement. tiger superstar is the first to win the triple crown since 1967. we'll talk about that. >>> a lot of issues went unmentioned at last night's debate. a six-foot tall yellow bird got everybody talking. as soon as mitt romney said he liked the sesame street character, big bird, but would do away with government funding of pbs, home of big bird, fake big bird accounts blew up on twitter. fired big bird has about 26,000 followers right now. and if mitt romney wins, this is what i'll be forced to do. out with a picture that has big bird with a will work for food sign. and even one where big bird claims allegiance with the 47%. poor big bird. we've heard from the analysts, pundits and politicians. what about you? was the first debate a game changer or is your mind made up and nothing can change it? an obama s
's more than our entire defense budget, and you think that by closing loopholes and deductions for the well-to-do, somehow you will not end up picking up the tab, then governor romney's plan may work for you. i think math, commonsense and our history shows us that's not a recipe for job fwroet. look, we've tried this. we've tried both approaches. the approach that governor romney is talking about is the same sales pitch that was made in 2001 and 2003, and we ended up with the slowest job growth in 50 years. we ended up moving from surplus to deficits, and it all culminated in the worst financial crisis since the great depression. bill clinton tried the approach that i'm talking about. we created 23 million new jobs. we went from deficit to surplus, and businesses did very well. in some ways we've got some data on which approach is more likely to create jobs and opportunity for americans, and i believe that the economy works best when middle class families are getting tax breaks so that they've got some money in their pockets, and those of us who have done extraordinarily well b
